CGTN reported that the city of Shanghai is now home to China's highest and, at the same time, its "lowest" skyscrapers. The two buildings – the Shanghai Tower and the Shanghai Quarry Hotel – completed over the past few years, has become the new icons of the city. Last November, China completed the world's first underground hotel. The 19-story five-star hotel has become the world's lowest skyscraper, or more precisely, an "earth scraper." With only two stories above ground, people on the other 17 floors pay over 600 U.S. dollars per night for a view of a giant pit. The pit is as deep as nearly 100 meters, and the newly unveiled hotel has attracted many locals and outsiders who want a chance to live the high life as low down as possible.

Xu Hongduo, one of the hotel's earliest customers, told CGTN "It's very unique that when you look out the window, it's neither a blue sky nor an ocean, but a high cliff. I've always tried to imagine what the hotel would look like. I feel it's a place full of stories."

She's based in Shanghai and checked in at the new hotel with her friend for the unique experience.
